The Indigenous Physical Activity and Cultural Circle (IPACC) is a network for First Nations, Métis and Inuit people who are involved in Traditional Activities, Fitness, Recreation, and Sports. IPACC is a registered national non-profit organization.
The Vision of IPACC is to establish and expand relationships between individuals engaged in physical activity by improving access to resources and promoting health and wellness opportunities.
The IPACC mission is to create a community of mentors, leaders, participants, and supporters who promote physical activity as a way to health and wellness.
Mentor, leader, participants, and supporters for IPACC are called Team Players IPACC will be guided in the development of the network by Advisory committees in the following areas:
- People with Special Needs
IPACC Team Players will be invited to join the Advisory committees and there will be a maximum of 6 participants in each committee area held at the annual National conferences. The IPACC Advisory committees will be supported to attend quarterly conference call meetings with the other members of the committee and meeting minutes from these meetings will be posted on the IPACC website.
